St. Thaddeus Monastery
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Saint Thaddeus Monastery (Armenian: Սուրբ Թադէոսի վանք - Sourb Tadeos Vank; Azerbaijani and Persian: قره کلیسا or Ghareh Keliseh, literally "The Black Church") is an ancient Armenian monastery located in the mountainous area of Iran's West Azerbaijan Province, about 20 kilometers from the town of Maku.
The monastery is visible from a distance because of the massiveness of the church, strongly characterized by the polygonal drums and conical roofs of its two domes.
This monastery built 302 AD.

Hello dear Saber
An impressive ancient building, where you have managed the sky and shade beautifully. The colours are delightful and I like the bokeh effect of the wide angle lens.

Very good shot, but for me the more valuable it is that I learned of the existence of the church!
Image is clear, a great viewing angle, very well done

Hello dear Saber
I was going to say this church looked Georgian or Armenian after visiting the old Armenian capital of Ani last June. It IS Armenian. Good sharpness and color with excellent framing leaving adequate breathing space right around. I like the upward pov too. Tfs!

Quel magnifique immeuble. J'aime le point de vue très bas qui donne de l'ampleur à l'ensemble. J'aime aussi le très beau ciel d'un bleu profond en arrière plan.

I like very much this tight and solid composition, the dynamism of the lines of the monastery converging towards the pointed towers and the sky is very attractive. You've achieved very good clarity and balanced light and shade very effectively. I especially like the way the light warms up the stones. The clear blue sky makes a splendid contrasting backdrop. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

The mountains are helping to frame the monastery. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the architecture of the St.Thaddeus monastery. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
